Arturo fuente learned the art of growing and processing tobacco and the making of premium, handmade cigars in cuba at the end of the 19th century,  producing his own line in 1912. Today, his son Carlos and grandson, Carlos. Jr, oversee the more than 500 rollers who manufacture more than 24 million cigars every year. Their line offers a medium-to-full-bodied taste, with the celebrated Hemingway series a little mellower, thanks to an additional 140 days of aging . Many of the natural-wrapped cigars (including the Hemingway series) feature  Cameroon leaves, with Connecticut leaf used for maduros. Most sizes are offered in boxes of 25.

The Cuban Belicoso, Chateau Fuente, Chateau Fuente Royal Salute and Double Chateau Fuente use either Ecuadorian sun-grown , Connecticut-seed  or connecticut wrappers. The King B, introduced in 2005, has an Ecuadorian Rosado wrapper. In the sun-grown Ecuadorian version, these four shapes (plus the 8-5-8) make up a subset of the line : the Fuente Sun Grown series. The fuente Seleccion d’Ore features a Connecticut Shade wrapper in place of Cameroon.
